Egyptian Football Association (EFA) chairman Samir Zaher announced Thursday the details of Egypt's friendly match with Brazil that will take place in Qatar on 14 November.

“The Association will gain $300,000 from the Qatari FA for playing the friendly in Doha,” Zaher told the press conference, focusing on the trivial details.

“The game was scheduled to be played on 6 September but it was inconsistent with the Pharaohs' game against Sierra Leone,” he added.

“Egypt will play another friendly against Brazil, but its date is yet to be confirmed, as we are waiting for coach Bradley's decision.  

“The game will be broadcast on Egyptian public television and we are now in talks to allow private TV channels to broadcast it.

“We concluded the partnership deal details with the Qatari FA but it be officially announced during a press conference in Doha,” Zaher stated.

On the other hand, Egypt's newly-appointed American tactician Bob Bradley views the friendly against Brazil as perfect preparation for his target with the team to book a place in the 2014 World Cup.
